Back to the Future 25

OMG...I can't believe it was 25 years ago since Back to the the Future was made!

"They invented the world's first time-travelling machine, the DeLorean, in Back To The Future.
And it seems the cast of the film franchise have turned back the clock once again for an anniversary launch of the Blu-ray set of the movies in New York.
Michael J. Fox, Christopher Lloyd, Lea Thompson and Mary Steenburgen reunited for the event where they showed that, despite shooting the first film nearly 30 years ago, they have aged remarkably well.

Lea Thompson, who played Fox's character Marty McFly's mother Lorraine, looked virtually as fresh-faced as she did in 1985, and wore a tight black dress on the red carpet.
The 49-year-old actress smiled for photographers and recalled her time shooting the films, adding that she has kept one of her most iconic outfits from the original Back To The Future film - her pink dress from her Under The Sea themed prom.
She said: 'I still have my pink dress, from the Prom. And every Halloween my kids try it on and I'm like, "No you can't wear that to a party!"

Meanwhile, Mary Steenburgen, who played Christopher Lloyd's character Doc Brown's love interest Clara, also looked enviably wrinkle-free as she posed on the blue carpet wearing a stunning red dress.
Speaking recently about what she kept as a souvenir from her film, Steenburgen, 57, admitted she had held on to a tiny pin from her costume which said the name 'Clara' on it.

However, while Steenburgen and Thompson were popular supporting characters in their own rights, the main roles undoubtedly belonged to Fox and Lloyd, who played Marty McFly and Doc Brown respectively.
Lloyd, 72, wore a black shirt and suit as he posed next to Fox on the blue carpet, and while he looked a lot thinner than he did in his Back To The Future days, he still had the same twinkle in his eye that Doc became famous for.
And Lloyd recently revealed he is keen to be involved in a Back To The Future 4, if it were ever to happen.
He said: 'I think it’d be a wonderful thing if it could be pulled off. I don’t know what the angle might be or whatever, but if Bob Gale wants to write another one and Bob Zemeckis gets excited to do it, anything could happen.

But Fox was undoubtedly the star of the event last night, looking healthy and relaxed as he smiled for photographers, despite having to cope with having Parkinson's Disease.
Talking about his illness, he told Sky News: 'I'm feeling OK. It's manageable. You know everybody gets their bag of hammers, this is just my bag of hammers, and I can handle it.'
And Fox, 49, admitted he still can't believe how popular the film series is.
He said: 'There are people who know a lot more about the movie than I do. They know trivia and ask me about the space-time continuum and I say, "I don't know I was just in the movie!"

The trilogy is fantastic, you can never get bored with it!!
